Brabham comes 22nd at Indy 500

Third-generation racing driver Matt Brabham has finished a respectable 22nd in the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

The 22-year-old rookie, who is backed by Gold Coast-based PIRTEK Team Murray Chevrolet, is the grandson of Australian racing legend Sir Jack Brabham and son of Geoff Brabham – both former Indy 500 competitors.

Matt’s participation in the iconic race on Sunday night saw the family become only the third in the event’s history to have three generations compete.

Fellow Indy 500 rookie Alexander Rossi took out the flag after squeezing just enough fuel out of his Honda to beat Andretti Autosport teammate Carlos Munoz from Colombia and American Josef Newgarden.

Queenslander Will Power came tenth.
